School-Based Health Centers were established especially for students in order to help make the best quality health care available in our community more accessible to them. Because they are located right in school. School-Based Health Centers help students overcome many obstacles to receiving good health care – obstacles such as lack of transportation, inconvenient appointment times, or worries about cost and confidentiality. 

School-Based Health Centers provide comprehensive medical and mental health care, treatment and health education to promote a healthy lifestyle. Each health center is operated by a partnership that includes ChristianaCare Health System, school district and the Delaware Division of Public Health, Department of Health and Social Services.


School-Based Health Centers (SBHCs) adhere to Federal and State regulations governing confidentiality of care. However, SBHCs encourage students to involve parents or guardians in their wellness plans. Parents and guardians are invited to call with questions or arrange to visit the center at their child’s school.
